While Victor Cruz was catching headlines as a breakout star in the Giants offense, it was Eli Manning who was the driving force behind the team's championship season.

Manning clearly took his game to another level as the running game struggled without Ahmad Bradshaw in stretches and a patchwork defense struggled to stay healthy.


Looking To Repeat

A few of the notable offensive players are gone, as Brandon Jacobs and Mario Manningham both signed with the 49ers in free agency. While both player contributed, it remains to be seen whether their absences will have a negative impact. For what it’s worth, I think Manningham is expendable because he’s a sloppy route runner, and fails to sit down well and provide Manning a nice target to throw the football to.

What will be interesting to watch is if Cruz can be as effective on the outside as he was in the slot. That said, expect the Giants to use him out of the slot weekly. Another player to watch is Jerrel Jernigan, who may get a chance to be the third receiver. In this offense, that means production.

Bradshaw may feel his feet are healthy, but forgive me if I’m a non-believer. Hopefully, the Giants will be wise and find a way to land Doug Martin in the draft. If they fail to bring in a notable draftee, Da’Rel Scott could emerge as a candidate to run behind Bradshaw this year.

On defense, corner Terrell Thomas will attempt to return from the torn ACL he suffered last preseason. The Giants need Thomas to perform capably  because it may already be time to be concerned about 2011 first-round pick Prince Amukamara. The former Nebraska Cornhusker is still having problems with the foot injury that cost him time last year.

I’m sure the Giants will find a way to string together a workable secondary, even if they continue to play in sub packages more often. New York’s front office and coaching staff do a great job of finding and developing talent, so you never know who the next star will be from this team. With that said, here's a look at the Giants' 2012 schedule.
